An easy walking trail for the first two-thirds with a steeper section in the last third. Nicely shaded making it ideal for a hot summer day. Good views of the main gorge and that of Silver Lake Outlet from the "spine". Various birds including hawks visible. An interesting foundation visible on the return loop leading to questions of origin. Easily done in 1.5 hours.
